Author's Note: In this piece I demonstrated my understanding of cause and effect on the reader's rubric using the book Flawless by Sara Shepard.
“I know everything. I could RUIN YOU.” –A She has the secrets and all he/she needs is a chance to strike. To let their dirty little secrets occupy the minds of the Rosewood residents. Everything will unfold perfectly from there. Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer are recently bonded over the messages from this mysterious person. Accusations are bouncing back and forth and the intensity continues. They only want to know one thing. Who is A?
In the second book of Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series, Flawless, there is no less drama than the first book. A main event in the plot is when all the girls finally conclude that Toby Cavanaugh, a guy from each of their pasts that has suddenly reappeared, is A. He has been the one tormenting them. They are frantic to get rid of him before anything bad happens, which they all assume would be that Toby will murder them next just like he did to their friend Ally. When Emily confronts him about it, he flips, apologizing and crying, before he finally gives up and runs away. This is only the beginning. Little did the girls know, he was confessing to a different crime and this they find out when Toby ends up dead and a new message from A pops up on their phones leaving the girls scarred and more confused than ever, “Don’t get too comfortable, it’s not over until I say it is.” -A
